Hi All,

Greetings for the day!!

I am trying to download files sftp server to my local machine, with created a date-wise folder.
but it's falling at the point of lcd.

here is my script.
@echo off
 
set datetime=%date:~7,2%%date:~4,2%%date:~10,4%
set "mydir=D:\Test\%datetime%\"
mkdir "%mydir%"
 
echo My Directory is created "%mydir%"
 
"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.com" ^
  /log="D:\temp\WinSCP.log" /ini=nul ^
  /command ^
   "open sftp://username:password@sftp.server1/logs/Test/ -hostkey=""ssh-key=""" ^
 
"lcd %mydir%" ^
 
    "get *.xml>1D" ^
    "exit"
 
set WINSCP_RESULT=%ERRORLEVEL%
if %WINSCP_RESULT% equ 0 (
  echo Success
) else (

Your duplicate (and answered) question on Stack Overflow:
https://stackoverflow.com/q/66684836/850848

Though here you have posted a batch file with syntax that will indeed produce the error you are describing. On Stack Overflow you did not preserve the exact indentation, so the error did not make sense.
